but actually you can't tell the total number of votes in the nation until california gets around to doing it. you know, some states count them very clean and don't seem to have any problem. >> megyn: how about virginia? is that true of virginia. >> virginia, that has been true. when george allen was defeated for senator six years ago by 6,000 or 7,000 votes, virginia went right down, you know, they went back over that, i believe there was recount or reexpectation of the vote, less than 100 votes changed. it was pretty straightforward. new hampshire is famous for doing that well, too and so forth. other states have had bigger problems. >> bret: we should point out if we put that back up. that was the national popular vote total. that will pop up throughout the night as well. you will see the actual vote total through the night. these are all the states throughout the nation and there you see it as it continues to tick up and for us, after the iowa caucuses, the difference was added, 61256 right now so i don't have to pull out the calculator. >> megyn: didn't you get yelled at by math teacher

democratic state. california used to be part of a so-called republican lock. so, you know states change. any given point they're going to be some small subset of states where it is closely argued but over time i think maybe all the states get a chance in the spotlight. jenna: change is the only constant, right? >> exactly. jenna: imagine an election about issues. >> we can't have that. jenna: we have a lot more to talk about. we already do, walter, great to have you on set with us. jon? jon: well it is all about the swing states in the race for the white house. we are now minutes away from president obama's rally in wisconsin. you're looking live at madison, wisconsin. guess who is on stage, the boss, bruce string steen. this comes amid controversy over comments the president made in another battleground state. telling voters there voting is the best revenge. governor romney has an answer to that, we'll take a fair around balanced looks coming up i'm only in my 60's... i've got a nice long life ahead. big plans. so when i found out medicare doesn't pay all my medical expenses, i looked at my
